I am in the process of deciding what the heck to do with firebutton.org. It has been up for practically a year now and has a working news system minus comments which I think is kinda boring. I post news to it occasionally, nobody probably reads it and it just isn't what I wanted it for. I also don't have anyone helping me with it. On the off chance that you get to read this, I really need somebody who would be interested in the project. The site is generally a retro-centric gaming site, and I wanted it to originally be a community site that talks about this kinda stuff and _not_ another emulation site. But now I think the topic can be a bit broader. It would be what I guess you could call "alternative gaming." An alternative to "retro" site that post just about emulation. An alternative to other gaming sites that focus on what all the other gaming sites are focusing on. I want to cover the weird, eccentric and just plain odd. The GBA stuff has been an obsession of mine also and I think it fits in, but I would like to make it a bit more general and cover other portables too. Another thing I would like to do is to have editorial pieces that are more of a broader view of whats going on in the gaming scene, observations of the culture and the like. It really is open and could be fun if anyone has any ideas and wants to write something up, please email me here or firstname.lastname@example.org. The reason why I am talking about this here is because I am also thinking of possibly moving firebutton to icculus.org. Its not that I dont appreciate the fact that my current host has hosted the site without charge for so long and helped set up the different php apps that we have used but having it at icculus.org would give me more control. I would have a shell account and could make quite edits a _lot_ Ok, I think I am done going on now. I just wanted to get this all out somewhere and if somebody is interested in helping out with writing, ideas, coding feel free to contact me.
